Dramatic Footage from Crimea of Lion jumping tourists in open canopy, tourist vehicle that looks like a stretch golf cart.

I saw the footage on news and did not take much notice of the where -- until now !

Being glib -- "only in Ukraine" was my first thought here !!

Sometimes I feel like such a 'worry wart" when contemplating  every action in Ukraine  --  from the adventure of everyday driving to looking at  the engineering and maintenance of amusement part attractions  and the emergency exits to movie theatre's !
Not long after my lady caught me checking that out -- there was a fire in a complex in eastern Russia that saw many children and adults lose their lives in a fire where the exits were  locked and blocked - needless to say that has given rise to numerous discussions virtually everywhere we go now !
Last winter  ( often over a period of time) I had been pointing out  why one needed to watch what was happening around them and  the danger of standing ( at lights or anywhere) to close to the road and explaining why --- when  !!  a garbage truck in attempting to turn the corner on iced road slid diagonally right across the intersection  and flattened everything in it's path !  No one hurt as it was all in relative slow motion  !

Building sites and road workers are amongst my "favourites !!

Sometimes it seems like every family in Ukraine has a close friend or relative that died in a motorcycle accident.  The Russian shopping mall, fire was one of those situations where some Oligarch who is doubtless close to people close to the Kremlin-based midget, converted a factory into a mall.  So, the building wasn't really designed for its purpose.  And they locked the exits too.  I don't recall anyone held responsible.  Parents  of victims were accused of trying to profit from the situation.
